Forecast Clouds Obama Speech Officials: Weather prompts address to be moved indoors
President Barack Obama swept into his convention city Wednesday, eager to accept his party’s nomination and make the case for re-election despite a sputtering economy. He hoped to claim a little luster from Bill Clinton’s prime-time address to the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday. In speech excerpts released several hours before his appearance, Clinton set the election as a choice between Obama and Republican Mitt Romney: “If you want a you’re-on-your-own, winner-takeall society, you should support the Republican ticket. “If you want a country of shared prosperity and shared responsibility … you should vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden.” Meanwhile, in a last-minute shift, the president ditched plans to deliver his acceptance speech before a throng of 74,000 at an out-

door stadium on the convention’s ﬁnal night, citing iffy weather for Thursday. With a chance of thunderstorms on the horizon, Obama will accept his party’s nomination indoors before about 15,000 people at the Time Warner Cable Arena. Obama planned a national conference call Thursday to those who won’t get in to the smaller hall. Convention CEO Steve Kerrigan said the speech was moved
“to ensure the safety and security of our delegates and convention guests.” But GOP spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski cast it as Democrats downgrading the event “due to lack of enthusiasm.” Rep. Patrick McHenry, a North Carolina Republican, speculated the decision “has to do more with attendance” than weather. Whatever the reason, the shift ensured there would be no repeat of the scene from 2008, when Obama accepted the Democratic nomination in a packed-to-thegills, 84,000-seat stadium in Denver, complete with ivory columns. Republicans mocked that as “The Temple of Obama.” The move also reduced the likelihood of anti-Obama hecklers, since most of the crowd will be ofﬁcial convention goers. CALVIN WOODWARD (AP)

DWj_ed Mayor Emanuel to Join Pro-Obama Super PAC President Barack Obama’s national campaign co-chairman, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, is stepping down to help raise money for a “super” political committee supporting Obama. The campaign and the super PAC conﬁrmed Wednesday that Emanuel is joining Priorities USA Action, which has spent millions of dollars on ads to help the president. Emanuel brings fundraising gusto to an operation that so far has trailed its GOP counterparts in the money race, partly because some prominent Democratic donors, including ﬁnancier George Soros, consider super PACs distasteful. The move adds another wrinkle to Obama’s evolving positions on how elections are funded. Campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki
The combined amount two conservative groups — American Crossroads and Americans for Prosperity — announced they’ll spend on ads to counter President Barack Obama’s Democratic convention, the groups said Wednesday. (AP)
said Wednesday that while Obama opposes the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United case that all but unraveled campaign-ﬁnance laws, he needs to use all available tools for raising money. “We’re not going to bring a butter knife to a gun ﬁght,” she said. Obama raised a remarkable $750 million four years ago, but his advisers now acknowledge that the incumbent likely will be outspent this time. JACK GILLUM (AP)

Hundreds reportedly removed amid probe into insider attacks AWXkb"7\]^Wd_ijWd Afghan authorities have detained or removed hundreds of soldiers in an investigation into rising insider attacks against international service personnel who are their supposed partners in the fight against Taliban insurgents and other militants, officials said Wednesday. The crackdown is the result of the Afghan Defense Ministry’s effort to re-evaluate soldiers to stem the attacks, which are complicating plans to train Afghan forces
so most foreign troops can withdraw from the country by the end of 2014. President Hamid Karzai’s government hopes Afghan forces can take responsibility for security nationwide by that time. The U.S. military is taking precautionary measures, too, and recently stopped training about 1,000 members of the Afghan Local Police, a controversial network of village-defense units that is growing but remains a fraction of the country’s army and police force. Karzai has expressed concern that without careful vetting, the program could end up arming strongmen or criminals. This year, 45 international service members, mostly Americans,

have died at the hands of Afghan soldiers or policemen or insurgents in their uniforms. There were at least 12 such attacks in August alone, resulting in 15 deaths. Defense Ministry spokesman Mohammad Zahir Azimi said that hundreds of Afghan National Army soldiers were removed from the service, but he declined to provide an exact number. Lt. Gen. James Terry, commander of the U.S.-led coalition’s joint command in Afghanistan, told Pentagon reporters Wednesday that he had heard 200 to 300 soldiers were removed in the revetting process, but that he had not yet conﬁrmed those numbers.

With violence escalating in the nearly 18-month-old crisis, strains rippled across the region as Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi urged Assad to take a lesson from the Arab Spring uprisings and step down. “It’s too late to talk about reform,” Morsi said. “This is the time for change.” However, there appears to be no end in sight for the conﬂict that activists say has claimed the lives of 23,000 people.

D.C. Thieves Target Family Cars 1998 Dodge Caravan is the most-stolen vehicle, report says
In Virginia, it’s the 1994 Honda Accord. The ’94 Accord is also the most-stolen car nationwide for the fourth consecutive year. The rankings are based on theft data from 2011 and include all vehicles reported stolen regardless of insured status, according to the NICB. It also reports that there was a reduction in national vehicle thefts in 2011, down 3.3 percent since last year and down 42 percent since 2003 — the lowest rate since 1967. In the Washington area, thefts are dow n more than 50 percent since 2003. MAGGIE FA ZELI FARD
MWi^_d]jed The 1998 Dodge Caravan is the hottest car in the District — at least as far as car thieves are concerned. The National Insurance Crime Bureau released its annual “Hot Wheels” report of the most-stolen vehicles nationwide and by state. The 1998 Caravan topped the list in D.C., while the 2000 model of the family-friendly minivan is the most-stolen vehicle in Maryland.

‘Science for This Century’ Scientists hope to decode disease in what was thought to be junk DNA
M^o:e[ij^[>kcWd=[dec[CWjj[h5 The human genome is made up of about 3 billion “letters” (formally known as “nucleotides”) along strands that make up the familiar double helix structure of DNA. Particular sequences of these letters form genes, which tell cells how to make proteins. Those proteins, in turn, build the cells and tissues of living organisms. People have about 20,000 genes, but the vast majority of DNA lies outside of genes, and scientists set out to study that mysterious 98 percent of the human genome that is not, strictly speaking, genes.
M^Wj:e[iJ^WjCoij[ho:D7:e5 In recent years, scientists have uncovered functions for some of that DNA, so it was not all junk, as once believed, but overall it has remained a mystery. Studies have found that DNA variations that predispose people to common diseases often lie outside the genes, raising the question of how they could have any effect. Scientists, in the studies released Wednesday, found that at least three-quarters of the genome is involved regulating gene activity. (AP/ T WP)
ÇJ^[X_]ikhfh_i[_i`kij^emckY^ WYj_l_joj^[h[_i$?jÊiW`kd]b[$È — E WA N BIRNE Y OF THE EUROPEAN MOLECULAR BIOLOGY LABORATORY IN HINXTON, ENGLAND, ON THE DISCOVERY OF THE ROLE THAT SO-CALLED JUNK DNA PLAYS
A colossal international effort has yielded the first comprehensive look at how our DNA works, an encyclopedia of information that will rewrite the textbooks and offer new insights into the biology of disease. For one thing, it may help explain why some people are more prone to common ailments such as high blood pressure and heart disease. The ﬁndings, reported Wednesday by more than 500 scientists, reveal extraordinarily complex networks that tell our genes what to do and when, with millions of on-off switches. “It’s this incredible choreography going on, of a modest number of genes and an immense number of … switches that are choreographing how those genes are used,” said Dr. Eric Green, director of the National Human Genome Research Institute, which organized the project. The work also shows that at least 80 percent of the human genetic code, or genome, is active. That’s surprisingly high and a sharp contrast to the idea that the vast majority of our DNA is junk. Most people know that DNA contains genes that hold the instructions for life. But s c ie nt i s t s h av e lon g k no w n t ho s e ge ne t ic blu e pr int s t a ke up on ly about 2 percent of the genome, and their understanding of what’s going on in the rest has been murky. The new work is “our ﬁrst global view of how the genome functions,” sort of a Google Maps that allows both bird’s-eye and close-up views
of what’s going on, said Elise Feingold of the genome institute. While scientists already knew the detailed chemical makeup
of the genome, “we didn’t really know how to read it,” she said in an interview. “It didn’t come with an instruction manual.”
One key participant, Ewan Birney of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Hinxton, England, compared the new work to a ﬁrst translation of a very long book. “This is the science for this century,” Birney told The Washington Post. “In this century, we will be working out how humans are made from this instruction manual.” The trove of f indings was released in 30 papers published by three scientiﬁc journals, while related papers appear in some other journals. In all, the 30 papers involved more than 500 authors. The project is called ENCODE, for Encyclopedia of DNA Elements. The discovery of the switches may help scientists in their search for the biology of disease, particularly common conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease
and asthma, scientists said. Studies have found that DNA variations that predispose people to such common disease often lie outside the genes, raising the question of how they could have any effect. The new work ﬁnds evidence that many of these variations fall within or near regulatory regions identiﬁed by the ENCODE project, suggesting a way they could meddle with gene activity. Birney said that with the ﬁnding of widespread activity across a person’s DNA, scientists will be debating how much of it is really crucial to life. Still, “it’s worth reminding ourselves that we are very, very complex machines,” Birney said. “It shouldn’t be so surprising that the instruction manual is really pretty fearsomely complicated.” MALCOLM RIT TER (AP)
J^[dkcX[he\][d[j_Yi_j[i scientists have mapped where proteins bind to DNA to regulate genetic function, sort of like a switch. The New York Times reported that researchers have linked those gene switches to a range of diseases — multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, to name a few — and even to physical traits. (AP)

Redskins’ Big Push
Orioles Are Worth Cheering for, Too
In third year under Haslett, defense aims to be dominant force The 2010 season was all about installing a new defense. The 2011 campaign: adding better tools and sharpening those already in use. Now, Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett and his players hope that 2012 marks their rise to dominance. There were plenty of growing pains in 2010. As they learned new positions and philosophies on the ﬂy, the Redskins took their lumps, ﬁnishing the year ranked 31st out of 32 defenses. But last season, with a year in the 3-4 scheme under the belts of linebackers Brian Orakpo, London Fletcher and Perry Riley and defensive end Adam Carriker, after drafting outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and the free agent signings of nose tackle Barry Coﬁeld and end Stephen Bowen, Washington featured a much more formidable defensive front. With improved ability to get to the quarterback, the upgraded front seven powered the defense’s rise to 13th in the league. The Redskins, who mustered only 29 sacks in 2010, racked up 41 in 2011. Over the past offseason, the Redskins accomplished two key goals, re-signing both Fletcher and Carriker, whose contracts had expired. The signings ensured that the front seven will remain intact. The hope is that continuity breeds further success. “When the Pittsburgh Steelers went to the 3-4 back when Bill Cowher took over their ﬁrst year, they

London Fletcher (No. 59) leads what should be an improved pass rush for the Redskins this season. The opener is Sunday.
The biggest questions on defense concern the secondary, where Washington ranked among the worst in the league statistically last season and has retooled during the offseason. DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson return at cornerback, but last season’s oft-injured safety tandem of LaRon Landry and Oshiomogho Atogwe has been replaced. The Redskins signed former twotime Pro Bowl strong safety Brandon Meriweather, who fell out of favor in New England and wasn’t a good fit in Chicago last season, to replace Landry. Former Maryland star and Minnesota Viking Madieu Williams will start at free safety. On Wednesday, the Redskins got some bad news: Meriweather will miss the season opener against the Saints because of sprained ligaments in his left knee. (T WP/AP)
were 25th,” Haslett said. “Their second year, they were 13th and their third year they were third … I do think that there is so much volume to it that it is a learning process. I am not saying that we are going to make those jumps. I’m just saying it takes a while to get players and, obviously, to understand. I think if you talk to the players, to a man,
they feel good about it.” Familiarity has lent itself to more f lexibility and creativity. Haslett plans to use Cofield on more stunts, making him more of a factor in the pass rush. And the coach will have Orakpo and Kerrigan switch sides to take advantage of mismatches rather than just restricting them to right and

At least a few times this year, I’ve been ribbed for switching allegiances from the baseball team of my youth to the Nationals. Growing up in Bethesda in the 1980s, I, like many of my friends, rooted for the Orioles — the only game reasonably close to town at the time. It didn’t hurt that Cal Ripken was the face of the franchise and Camden Yards re8oCWjj vitalized the team (until Im[died Peter Angelos went and ruined it). But I always wanted a team in D.C., even if it was a bad one. Switching to the Nats in 2005 wasn’t hard — and this season has been spectacular to watch. So am I a bad person if I was excited to see the O’s claim a share of first place in the American League East on Tuesday night? Part of the joy is seeing the big bad Yankees choke, but the bulk of my feelings stemmed from childhood. I doubt I’m alone here.

left, respectively. “We’re just being creative out there as a defensive front,” Orakpo said. “Whether it’s lining up on either side, moving around, if it’s a three-down look and me being the spinner. It’s just us, trying to create more mismatches and take advantage of it. We’re doing all that.”

There’s no confusion about which team I’d want to win if there was — gasp — a World Series between Baltimore and Washington. But I still want to see the Birds get there. Just because the Nationals are a great story, even without the Stephen Strasburg drama, doesn’t mean the O’s aren’t worth cheering on, too. The Orioles still mean something to a lot of Washingtonians. There’s no sense denying it. This is a win-win for both sides.

Washington prepares for season as threat of a lockout looms J^[9Wf_jWbi
With negotiations between the NHL and its players association stalled, the league may be headed toward its third lockout in less than 20 years when the current collective bargaining agreement expires Sept. 15. You wouldn’t know it by looking at the Capitals. Players have been trickling back into Washington over the past few weeks to take part in informal workouts at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington. Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and nine other Caps

took to the ice Tuesday in preparation for a season that might not start on time. “I was going to come here ready [to play],” Backstrom said Tuesday. “If there’s going to be a lockout, I want to get ready the same as I always do.” That sentiment stretched to the front ofﬁce, where ﬁrst-year coach
Adam Oates and general manager George McPhee were operating with a “business-as-usual” mindset. “As of right now, I’m acting as if it’s going to get resolved,” Oates said. Oates understands the feelings that the players could be experiencing as another work stoppage looms. He was with the Boston
Bruins during the 1994-95 lockout that ultimately limited the NHL to 48 games. “Every day you’re calling [teammates] waiting to hear,” he said. “It’s very similar to what guys are going through now. You go through every feeling … a little uneasy, a little, ‘Oh well, it’ll get resolved,’ a little curious, then ‘Man, I kind of miss it.’ ” If and when the 2012-13 season begins, the Caps will focus on returning to the top of the Eastern Conference after a down year by their standards. McPhee said the threat of a lockout is not enough to impede progress. “We’re prepared to get going here,” he said. “If it changes, we’ll adjust. We have to be ready to go.” ADAM VINGAN (FOR E XPRESS)

Avant-garde composer John Cage was a genius, an instigator and a lover of all kinds of sounds Cki_Y John Cage’s name never quite fit. As one of the 20th century’s most important experimental composers and intellectuals, Cage, who died 20 years ago, resisted constraints, striving instead to allow sounds to be sounds. “I remember loving sound before I ever took a music lesson,” he said in the 1949 talk “Lecture on Nothing.” “And so we make our lives by what we love.” The John Cage Centennial Festival, which runs through Monday at venues all over Washington and marks the 100th anniversary of the American composer’s birth, works much like one of Cage’s compositions, providing portals of insight into this great thinker’s art — which, in addition to music, included dance, painting and writing. Cage’s compositions are more than just notes on paper. (In the case of his famous 1952 piece “4’33”,” which consists of four minutes and 33 seconds of silence, it’s not about notes at all.) Rather, they are wide-eyed invitations to open your mind and tune into the aural elements of everyday life. As Arnold Schoenberg, one of Cage’s teachers, once said, “Of course he’s not a composer, but he’s an inventor — of genius.” Cage used found objects (scrap metal, kitchen utensils) for percussion, stuck objects into pianos to toy with tonality and employed the “I Ching,” an ancient Chinese text on divination, to construct his pieces randomly. If all of this sounds a little

COURTESY MARGARET LENG TAN
Kd#9W][ZC[beZo Pianist Margaret Leng Tan worked with John Cage and will perform two of his works.
P[dWdZj^[7hj E\@e^d9W][ “[Music] is an affirmation of life,” John Cage said in the 1957 lecture “Experimental Music,” “a way of waking up to the very life we’re living, which is so excellent once one gets one’s mind and one’s desires out of its way and lets it act of its own accord.” Buddhism had a tremendous influence on Cage’s work, and one of the most elucidating talks will be “Cage and Zen” by Centennial Festival co-creator Roger Reynolds (Sat., 6:45 p.m., at the Freer Gallery of Art). Pianist Margaret Leng Tan will then perform Cage’s “Four Walls” (1944) and “Music for Piano #2” (1953), with the latter accompanied by “10 Stones,” a piece of video art by Rob Dietz based on Cage’s 1989 watercolor painting of the same name. “My concert is a good starting point because the music is so listenable,” Tan says. “It’s not that ‘kapink-a-ponk’ style of music. It’s very much from the heart; it’s a very honest, personal piece.” “Four Walls” was a “dance-drama” composed for choreographer Merce Cunningham, Cage’s life partner and frequent collaborator. The more meditative “Music for Piano” series was created by following the imperfections of the paper on which they were written. With the two pieces, Tan says, “You can see the two sides of John Cage’s personality: before he discovered Zen and after he discovered Zen.” C.P.

At Woolly, actors brush up on their body slams and get ready to rumble IjW][ Professional wrestlers insist their matches aren’t fake. We know better than to argue with them. But what about the fighting in a scripted play about professional wrestling — that has to be fake, right? Joe Isenberg, the fight choreographer for “The Elaborate Entrance of
Chad Deity,” wants to beat that idea right out of you. The stage wrestling featured in the show, now playing at Woolly Mammoth Theatre, is in no way phony, he says. “They’re really hitting the ground” — pine boards and steel girders with a measly inch of foam on top. “Chad Deity” is interested in the personas of wrestlers — and the mentalities of winners and losers in a sport where the outcome is known from the beginning. The Mace (Jose Joaquin Perez) is one of those losers: It’s his job to get beaten up over and over and over
Shawn T. Andrew (who plays Chad Deity) and Jose Joaquin Perez (aka The Mace) get in the ring.
J^[Ijeho Chad Deity (Shawn T. Andrew) is the reigning champion of his wrestling club, thanks to such perennial (predetermined) losers as The Mace (Jose Joaquin Perez). Then The Mace and his buddy VP (Adi Hanash) take on new wrestling personalities, and, with them, new strength.
Powerbomb: One wrestler flips the other onto his shoulders and then drops him 6 feet to the mat. “It’s amazing how little force is needed to make the gravity intensify exponentially,” Isenberg says. Superkick: “The reason why a superkick is called a superkick,” Isenberg says, “is because it’s that much more super than any other kick. It’s really the je ne sais quoi awesomeness of the superkick.” A superkick is, unlike most kicks, a fight-ending move. Grand entrance: Before the fight, each wrestler makes a dramatic entrance to explain why he’s called “The Viking” or “The Chicken” or whatever. “Professional wrestling is about broad strokes,” Isenberg says. “How can we define this character in as dramatic and glitzy a way as possible?”
again. And it’s Isenberg’s role to keep the inauthentic fighting authentic. With a Kenan Fellowship from the Kennedy Center (the first for stage combat), he worked on a production of “Chad Deity” at Actors Theatre of Louisville with wrestler Al “The Snowman” Snow. Isenberg learned that stage wrestling is nothing like ordinary theatrical fighting. Fight choreographers tend to specialize in knives, guns and swords: “You use all those for Shakespeares. And Shakespeares. And more Shakespeares,” Isenberg says. In traditional stage-combat training, actors can develop their moves gradually, starting slow and working up to speed. Every moment is controlled, and actors can stop the fight at any time if they feel uncomfortable. “In professional wrestling, your third partner is physics,” Isenberg says. “Much like learning to do gymnastics: You can’t slow down a flip because you’ll fall on your head
and break your neck.” The play’s choreography gets a boost from the real-life wrestling talent. One of the actors, James Long (who plays a variety of bad-guy wrestlers over the course of the show), is a professional wrestler. He wrestles for Ohio Valley Wrestling (“The Harvard of professional wrestling,” according to some) under the name Paredyse, described as the “Fabulous, Flamboyant, Femmeboy Phenom of Wrestling.” Long helps with drills and with establishing the mentality of the wrestling ring, which is as devoted to glamor as Miss America. “Chad Deity isn’t Chad. If he’s Chad, he’s just another guy,” Isenberg says. “But if he has all the glitz, I want to be this guy.” FIONA ZUBLIN (E XPRESS) Woolly Mammoth Theatre, 641 D St. NW; through Sept. 30, $35-$68; 202-393-3939, Woollymammoth.net.

U.S. HISTORY WITH A SIDE OF INTERIOR DESIGN INSPIRATION
Galleries of artifacts donated by members and 31 period rooms, each representing a state, purpose and style, stand up for such evergreen ideals as knickknack collecting, bold color palettes and indestructible wood furniture. With its Chinese-inspired branches and birds, the snazzy hand-painted wallpaper in the New York room could be straight from a modern-day nest-
ing catalog. The Massachusetts room is modeled on the parlor where John Hancock and Sam Adams received Paul Revere’s news that the British were coming. Look for the bullet holes in the paneling and furniture of the New Jersey room — the wood was salvaged from the British frigate Augusta, sunk during the Revolutionary War. The library is a hot destination for genealogical researchers. Don’t expect to waltz in and instantly discover you’re DAR-eligible: These things take time.
The New York room’s bird-bedecked wallpaper is still on trend today.

squawks, barks and howls have finally replaced beeping trucks and blaring jackhammers. After five years of planning and renovation, the zoo’s new American Trail exhibit opened to the public last weekend. Most of the greenery surrounding the winding, sloping trail is meant to evoke the Pacific Northwest, with such plants as white birch, red maples, ferns and holly. The true stars of the new area, of course, are the animals — many of whom lived here previously, albeit in less-plush surroundings. Here are some of the trail’s must-visit residents. K ATIE ABERBACH (E X PRES S)
@eWdMWbi^ In her controversially titled new book, “What’s the Matter with White People? Why We Long for a Golden Age That Never Was,” Salon.com editor and MSNBC analyst Joan Walsh writes about more than race. Walsh, who speaks at Politics and Prose on Friday, explores how liberals and conservatives have perpetuated an “us vs. them” narrative that obscures the real American experience.
This is your ﬁrst book on politics. Are these ideas you’ve had for a while? I have always been interested in why the white working class, once the bedrock of the Democratic base, became the bedrock of the Republican base. So I set out to tell the story of how people in my own family fell away from the Democratic Party.
How does your family ﬁt into that larger narrative? There was a divide in my family. The three brothers [Walsh’s uncles] who went to religious orders had college educations, and they became liberals. The two brothers and a sister who did not go to college became conservative. I’ve had conversations where it sounds like I was saying liberalism is the smart choice and conservatism the uneducated choice. I truly don’t believe that. I know my family [members] are all smart, and they have reasons to believe what they believe.
That family story gives the book more heft than your typical election-year title. I use my family because most of us are not as close to the immigrant experience as prior generations. It’s important to share stories. STEPHEN M. DEUSNER (FOR E XPRES S) Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW; Fri., 7 p.m., free; 202-364-1919, Politics-prose.com. (Van Ness)
Ief^_[" 9Wb_\ehd_WI[WB_ed (Zalophus californianus) Meet one of the National Zoo’s newest darlings: 14-month-old Sophie, one of four female sea lions who live in the American Trail’s largest pool enclosure along with a gray seal (and, starting this fall, three more seals). The daughter of sea lion Calli, 7, who’s also in the exhibit, Sophie already seems interested in others — even humans. “She has that pup’s curiosity,” says animal keeper Christina Castiglione, “and she does seem to interact with viewers” at the two shaded underwater viewing areas. In the sea lions’ daily demos, Sophie and Co. will display some of their species’ typical behaviors, including vocalizing, twirling in circles on rocks and in the water, and reaching up to touch objects with their noses. Keep an eye on Sophie’s development over the next few years, Castiglione says. “She’s very inquisitive, very excited to learn new things, and she is at the beginning of her training. You’re going to be able to see her grow.” And not just skillwise: The pup, who now weighs under 100 pounds, is expected to reach the weight of a typical female California sea lion — 250 to 350 pounds — by the age of 5.

9hoijWb"=hWoMeb\ (Canis lupus) Crystal is one of two 8-year-old female gray wolves living along the American Trail. The wolves are newcomers to the National Zoo (the zoo previously exhibited Mexican wolves, which are a subspecies of the gray wolf). With her dusty white coat, Crystal would blend perfectly into the Arctic tundra. Coby, the other half of Crystal’s “pack” (the two, though not siblings, were raised together with Coby’s litter-mates), has salt-andpepper gray fur. The wolves were raised at Canada’s Calgary Zoo, but animal keeper Rebecca Miller says they’ve settled into their spacious new Washington digs — which include dens made with timber repurposed from around the zoo — very nicely. Well, except for one thing: “Sometimes they’ll howl if they hear a siren going off in the background,” Miller says.

Residents since 1999, they’re already used to their lush, green habitat — which was significantly expanded with new outdoor and indoor space and a wider range of viewing angles for visitors. But creatures of habit they are not: “They’re very smart, they learn very quickly,” animal keeper Malia Somerville says. “But they do have a short attention span, much like small children. You get kind of a short window, and then they’re off.” Expect to see these guys climb tree branches, forage for food and swim and dive in their pool (be sure to check out the underwater viewing area below their enclosure).

U Street Music Hall’s Red Fridays pay tribute to Red, a now-defunct Dupont Circle club popular among B-boys, hip-hoppers and house music aficionados until its 2005 closure.

Shakespeare’s Globe brings a shorter, simpler and, yes, funnier version of ‘Hamlet’ to the Folger IjW][ “Hamlet,” like many Shakespearean tragedies, ends in a bloodbath. At the end of the play, there are three stabbing victims and one poisoned queen on stage; add in the corpses that are offstage (more stabbings, a drowning), and you’ve got quite a body count. Good thing the title character is such a comedian. “He’s a genius, first off,” says Michael Benz, who will be playing the iconic Dane as the Folger hosts the D.C. debut of the production by Shakespeare’s Globe t heater of London. “A nd like most geniuses, [he’s] really, really clever and really, really funny. They know how to get the humor out of Benz the macabre. There’s humor all the way through it, and I try to bring out as much as I can. Great humor comes out of moments of horribleness.” This version of “Hamlet” is a lot leaner than what you might remember. The play — which can run upward of four hours when nothing is cut out — has been trimmed to a brisk 2½ hours here, mostly by losing the whole warwith-Norway subplot that even your high school English teacher probably breezed over. This is less of an affront to Shakespeare, Benz says, than an accurate reflection of what would have happened in Shakespeare’s time. “It would have been cut and sliced 400 years ago when on the road,” he
Hamlet (Michael Benz), Rosencrantz (Peter Bray) and Laertes (Matthew Romain) take a stab at conflict resolution.

says. “They’ve cut bits here and there, but all the juicy bits are in there. People go in knowing it’s slightly slimmed down, but they often say, ‘We didn’t notice any of the cuts.’ ” Benz still used the full text as he prepared to take on what is perhaps the most famous Shakespearean role — or possibly the most famous part in the Western canon. “I actually read the unedited, unadulterated version at least three or four times before reading our version,” he says. But “I made a decision to just focus on our version and not to think about the stuff that’s cut. I look at it as our version.” Another reflection of the Globe’s method (when in London, the cast performs in a replica of the famous Elizabethan theater) are the simplified costumes and sets used in the production. Benz says this gives the production “a timeless kind of quality.”
Ifejb_]^j Anglo-American actor Michael Benz, who plays Hamlet, got his start in acting at age 12 on British TV, where he played Little Lord Fauntleroy for the BBC. Benz grew up in England as one of six children of American parents. He came to the U.S. for college and graduated from Georgetown University in 2004, where he majored in psychology. (THE WASHINGTON POST )
That quality is helpful in other ways, he admits. “Certainly from a practical point of view, since we’re not in full Elizabethan garb — I’m not in tights, the ladies are not in corsets — there’s a certain ease we have onstage.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

Ikdd&0 There’s metal that grunts about Satan with wailing guitars and drums trying to beat you to death. Then there’s drone. Los Angeles’ Sunn 0))) takes its name from a type of amplifier, which makes sense considering the band’s music is a hypnotic series of LOUD sustained notes with minimal instrumentation. (See the incredible 2003 disc “White1.”) You can feel this band vibrating your liver. And though the members dress in goofy monk’s robes, they’re not kidding. This is heavy, this is metal.

In ‘Kumaré,’ a director starts a fake new-age movement to see what we’re all searching for
Strike of the Pen In “THE WORDS,” out Friday, Bradley Cooper plays a struggling writer who swipes another author’s unpublished manuscript. Hey, writing is hard — just ask these movie authors. K.P.K. KINO LORBER
Not to get controversial, but let’s just pretend that, at some point, some spiritual leader might have fudged some details of his life. Maybe he spent only 20 days under the bodhi tree. Or maybe he had a hand in carving a couple of stone tablets. Or maybe he wasn’t exactly born in a manger in Bethlehem. How much do the details matter to his students? Does one false statement render his message invalid? For the film “Kumaré,” opening Friday, director Vikram Gandhi reinvented himself as a new-agestyle guru named Kumaré. He claimed to have been born in rural India (not true) and developed a “blue light” ritual to help people see their true selves (kind of true; he invented it but admits it was largely nonsense) and eventually amassed a group of followers by explicitly telling them that all gurus are false and all the knowledge they need is already inside them (true?). Gandhi believes in his message but chose to spread it through pure lies. “Kumaré” has, rather unfairly, been compared to such pseudodocumentaries as Sacha Baron
'Paul Sheldon Director Vikram Gandhi, center, set up a bogus spiritual ministry in Arizona to see what it would take to attract a following.
ÇJ^[h[ÊiWd[[Zjebeeajej^[;Wij\ehW Z[[fm_iZecm[ZedÊj^Wl[_dj^[M[ij$È — V IK R A M GA NDHI, DIRECTOR OF “KUMARÉ,” ON WHAT HE THINKS DREW FOLLOWERS TO THE MADE-UP SPIRITUAL PRACTICE HE DOCUMENTS IN HIS NEW FILM
Cohen’s “Borat,” though “Kumaré” lacks any satiric edge. “It’s an easy comparison,” Gandhi says. “On the surface, it’s a person pretending to be somebody else. The only thing similar is what the most brilliant parts of ‘Borat’ do — the parts that show this misunderstanding of the rest of the world.” The recent trendiness of yoga and other Eastern spiritual tradi-
tions gave Gandhi an edge when he began his “ministry” in Arizona. “There’s a need to look to the East for a deep wisdom we don’t have in the West,” Gandhi says. “Or a kind of spiritual inferiority complex that I think first world and Western nations have.” Though Gandhi did not model Kumaré on a particular person, “he comes out of the stereotype of an Indian guru.”
Kumaré was a real presence while Gandhi was shooting. “Any time I left the house I was in character, whether planning a shot list or planning a [yoga] class,” he says. “In those ways, Kumaré was involved in making the film. “But when we had dinner afterward,” Gandhi says, “I may have been wearing the clothes, but not speaking in the accent.” Or imparting universal wisdom.

Salute Their Shorts COURTESY DC SHORTS FILM FESTIVAL
The DC Shorts Film Festival begins this week, which means 10 days of films specifically targeting the short-attention-span crowd. (Isn’t that all of us, at this point?) What you get at this strong, competitive local festival is the ability to absolutely gorge yourself on films, some of which are shorter than the last YouTube clip you posted on Facebook. The 140 films are divided into 16 showcases, some of which come with Q&As that feature free snacks prepared by local chefs to go along with one of the movies. (We liked “Look to the Cookie,” a six-minute documentary about a 110-year-old New York bakery. Milk might be nice to bring to that one.) If you want to see nothing but the best of the best, you’ll want to attend one of the Best of Fest showcases (Sept. 15 and 16), which feature award-winning films and those voted as audience favorites. Locations vary; through Sept. 16, $12-$125; “Look to the Cookie” captures a day in the life of a bakery owner.
There are lots of tricks to bust through writer’s block. In 1990’s “Misery,” Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates) discovers that Paul Sheldon (James Caan) responds really well to a sledgehammer.
(Truman Capote Of all the versions of Capote that have cropped up in films, none has been creepier than Philip Seymour Hoffman’s portrayal in 2005’s “Capote.” The story of how “In Cold Blood” came to be is an extreme example of how far a writer will go to finish.
)Charlie Kaufman Charlie Kaufman is a real guy who wrote 2002’s “Adaptation.” In the film, Kaufman (Nicolas Cage, who also plays Kaufman’s fictional twin) is trying to write a movie based on an article about orchids written by another writer and let’s all go lie down now.
*Joe Gillis In 1950’s “Sunset Boulevard,” screenwriter Gillis (William Holden) gets a ticket out of the starving-artist life when he’s hired by silent-screen star Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) to write her comeback. Unfortunately, his last stop is facedown in her pool.
+Jack Torrance All work and no play (and a haunted hotel and alcoholism and having Shelley Duvall as your wife) makes Jack a murderous boy in 1980’s “The Shining.” Writer’s block kills, kids.

A blueberry soda float
Visitors stand in front of an old-fashioned sign at Union Market during a preview event in June. The new market’s grand opening is Saturday.
Old-fashioned, handmade sodas have been coming back in a big way the past few years at local restaurants. I’ve sipped and savored some great ones this summer, including the deeply spicy ginger beer at Arlington’s Green Pig Bistro (1025 N. Fillmore St.; 703-8881920) and the refreshingly citrusy cherry yuzu soda at J&G Steakhouse (515 15th St. NW; 202-661-2440). But my favorite carbonated concoction of late comes from Gina Chersevani, who’s cur8oAWj_[ rently manning the 7X[hXWY^ Eddy Bar inside Capitol Hill’s Hank’s Oyster Bar (633 Pennsylvania Ave. SE; 202-733-1971) and is the owner of the soon-to-open Buffalo & Bergen soda shop in Union Market (see story, right). Chersevani’s blueberry soda float is a decadent treat: fizzy bright-purple soda, made with syrup from fresh blueberries, topped with two gloriously melty scoops of vanilla ice cream. The drink, pre-stirred, is an ombre masterpiece: Frothy pale shades of cream merge into violet and fuchsia, which recede into deep, dark, regal purple. Chersevani believes every sip of a soda should deliver a new taste and that the beginning of the drink should be completely different from the middle and the end. An initial skeptic of this “journey,” I experienced exactly that (and, yes, I did stir up my drink a bit): My early gulps were tangier than my final few. The middle was complex, with alternating tastes of berries and cream. So, guess which stall will be my first stop when I visit Union Market? Read Katie’s column every other week here and at Expressnightout.com.
This Pop Rocks
Local purveyors sell oysters, cheese and more in a historic gathering spot Kd_edCWha[j" the new food bazaar on Neal Place
NE (between 5th and 6th streets), opens Saturday with all the makings of an artisanal food paradise in the middle of one of D.C.’s up-and-coming-butnot-quite-there-yet neighborhoods. This corner has been used as a market space for decades — most often called the Union Terminal Market — but it has transformed over generations from an outdoor meat and egg bazaar to a tamer indoor space. Eventually, 40 vendors will sell baked goods, produce, local meat and dairy and other food-focused goods from stalls arranged throughout the space (which will also include areas for customers to sit and eat food bought on the premises). Here are a few of the ﬁrst vendors open for business. K ATIE ABERBACH AND FIONA ZUBLIN (E X PRES S) 1309 5th St. SE; opens Sat. 8 a.m.-8 p.m.; Unionmarketdc.com. (NoMA-Gallaudet)
8k\\Wbe8[h][d Bartending luminary Gina Chersevani’s newest endeavor is an 18-seat soda shop, complete with a staff of soda jerks. Buffalo & Bergen (Buffaloand bergen.com) is named after the intersection where Chersevani’s mom grew up in Brooklyn. “There was a soda shop there called Norma’s, and my mom always said it was the best soda ever,” Chersevani says. “In 2007, I made a chocolate egg cream soda with tequila. My mom tasted it, and she said, ‘It’s good, but it’s not like Norma’s.’ ” Her mom’s judgment inspired Chersevani to try to impress at her own soda shop. Sixteen fizzy drinks will be available — as regular sodas or as floats, creams or cocktails. More than 100 combos are possible. Food-wise, Brooklyn is still an inspiration: Chersevani will offer various versions of knishes, from traditional potato to Indian barbecue. F.Z.
HWffW^WddeYa H_l[hEoij[hi Cousins Travis and Ryan Croxton were born into an oyster family: Their grandfather started Rappahannock River Oysters (Rroysters.com) on the coast of Virginia in the 19th century, and, when the state leases came up for renewal, Travis and Ryan had to make a choice: take over or give up the family tradition. “So we started researching how to grow oysters,” Travis Croxton says. “We made it our mission to re-establish oysters in the Chesapeake and get them to be a thing of pride again.” Rappahannock River Oysters’ stall at Union Market — which will seat 20 — will focus (obviously) on the raw bar, with seafood-heavy small plates and artisanal beers rounding out the menu. Rappahannock River Oysters are key, but Travis says the bar will feature other varieties of local oysters as well. F.Z.

Stromberg has worked with cheese in and around D.C. for seven years, honing her expertise at Cheesetique and Cowgirl Creamery, among other dairy destinations. Most recently, she’s offered cheese-tasting instruction to soldout crowds through her business, the Cheese Course, and run the cheese program at Seasonal Pantry. At Righteous Cheese (whose name pokes fun at the selfrighteous nature of foodie culture), Stromberg will continue to help “demystify cheese.” “I want guests to be comfortable and be able to explore new things and try new things and not be intimidated by pronouncing the name of the cheese wrong,” Stromberg says. Visitors can expect to find between 40 and 50 cheeses for sale, many small-batch, seasonal and local. For those who can spend a little more time considering Camemberts, Stromberg will offer three daily cheese flights (paired with beer, wine or nonalcoholic drinks) at her 10-seat bar. K.A.

Settling into its first fixed location, D.C. Empanadas will sell many of the deep-fried, stuffed pastries regulars know and love from the company’s sky-blue food truck — along with plenty of new menu additions. Anna Bran-Leis, who owns D.C. Empanadas with her husband, Shawn Leis, will manage the Union Market location while Leis will keep the truck on the road. At the market, D.C. Empanadas’ menu will feature the classics (such as the truck’s most popular “traditional” empanada, containing seasoned shredded beef, tomatoes, raisins, onions, green olives and cilantro). Expect a few new empanadas with higher-end ingredients and flavor combos as well (such as a beef Wellingtoninspired empanada and another containing duck meat). Over nearly two years in business, “we’ve had a lot of requests for baked empanadas,” Bran-Leis says, so the shop will also sell pre-made, pre-packaged turnovers that customers can pop into the oven at home. After the market has been open for a few weeks, the shop might also branch into brunch on the weekends, she says. “I picture one of the things that we’ll do is an arepa [a flat, round patty of cornmeal or flour] filled with cheese and a fried egg on top and chorizo hash,” Bran-Leis says.

JWAeh[Wd TaKorean (Takorean.com) has been an exclusively wheeled operation for the past two years, but, as with D.C. Empanadas, nothing’s changing just because the business is parking. The truck will keep rolling. TaKorean’s stall at Union Market will basically be the “exact same concept and the exact same food that people expect,” owner Mike Lenard says. He predicts the fusion cuisine — soft tacos made to order with customers’ choices of veggies, Korean-style proteins and sauces — will translate equally well to the Union Market crowd. “There’s a limited amount of ingredients total,” Lenard says, “but there’s an unlimited amount of customization that the customer can do.” If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Still, he’s considering introducing a few new ingredients after things settle down, including Korean-style braised pork. K.A.

Cki_Y Nicki Minaj specializes in rhymes that blow your hair back, but her latest verse delivers a fresh shock. “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney,” she raps on “Mercy,” a Lil Wayne song that went online Monday. Don’t update that iPod playlist just yet, Paul Ryan. Couched in hallucinogenic sex talk and rhymes about chilling on the beach with zombies, this doesn’t seem like a political endorsement so much as a game of “Look at me!” — a stunt that should smell funny and familiar to anyone who witnessed Minaj’s performance-slash-mockexorcism at the Grammy Awards in February. But Minaj’s words still underscore President Barack Obama’s wobbly relationship with the greater world of hip-hop. In 2008, enthusiastic lyrical endorsements came spilling from Jay-Z, Nas, Common, Ludacris, Lupe Fiasco and other rappers cheering Obama’s run for the White House in song. Four years later, the hip-hop community has its share of Obama supporters, Obama detractors, ambivalent shoulder-shruggers and, with Minaj, an emerging pro-zombie, pro-Romney bloc. In 2008, Young Jeezy’s zeitgeisty single “My President” made an
I can’t believe it took me four years to find out about “Childrens Hospital.” I recently heard series creator Rob Corddry talk about it on “The Daily Show,” tuned in, and developed a bad case of “Childrens Hospital” fever. The show, which launched season 4 in August (Adult Swim, Thursdays, midnight), is, of course, set in a children’s hospital named for its founder, Arthur Childrens. The chief doctor, Chief, is a hunched woman in a walker. Her voice 8oCWhY sounds so familiar. I_bl[h OMG, it’s Megan Mullally! When she isn’t awaiting the Rapture, Chief performs brain surgery, including a successful operation on herself to cure an ailment that made her spontaneously burst into song. Sadly, she was struck by a car while doing a celebratory dance. This season, “Madonna” (portrayed by a broad-shouldered man in a wig) dropped by, hoping to write a song that transforms doctors from unsung heroes to “sung heroes by singing about them.” Corddry plays Blake, above, a doctor with clown paint on his face and a butterfly-shaped blood stain on his scrubs. Thank you, “Dr. Blake,” for cooking up a hospital sitcomedydramedy that TV hospital show fans could never have dared dream of.

impressive dent on the radio while other pro-Obama rap tunes proliferated online, nudging young voters to the polls. This year, those odes aren’t as plentiful. The most intriguing lyric to cite Obama this election cycle comes from Atlanta’s Killer Mike, whose smoldering “Reagan” compares Obama to the Gipper: “Ronald Reagan was a actor, not at all a factor / Just an employee of the country’s real masters / Just like the Bushes, Clinton and Obama.” Obama has an unﬂagging supporter in Jay-Z, arguably hip-hop’s most inﬂuential bazillionaire.

gave the Obama campaign an assist Saturday in Philadelphia at his Made in America music festival, airing a prerecorded video from POTUS in the middle of his performance. In the clip, Obama encouraged the audience of 40,000 to cast a ballot on Nov. 6. “Whatever your politics or your party, you should vote this fall,” he said. As of Wednesday afternoon, Minaj hadn’t taken to the bandwidth to clarif y her Romney endorsement, and her representatives had not returned requests for comment. Was she rapping from the perspective of a character? Was she trolling for Internet chatter? Both? Either way, don’t take her endorsement too seriously. Voter rolls in New York, Georgia and California — Onika Tanya Maraj’s last three states of residence — show that she’s not registered. CHRIS RICHARDS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Aniekan Udofia, center, with the help of Joseph Patino, left, works on the Chuck Brown portion of the mural at Ben’s Chili Bowl.
7I_Z[EhZ[he\7hj At Ben’s Chili Bowl, a graffiti-inspired mural brightens up U Street MWi^_d]jed At first sight, you might call it the Mount Rushmore of Half-Smokes. Or maybe the Four Horsemen of the Chili-pocalypse. Personally, I’ll go with the Ben’s Wall of Fame. Whatever you choose to nickname the new mural that adorns the outside wall of D.C.’s iconic Ben’s Chili Bowl, you have to admit: It’s beautiful. Portraits of Chuck 8o9b_djed Brown, Bill Cosby, OWj[i President Ba rack Obama and Donnie Simpson now serve as greeters if you ﬁnd yourself in one of the lines that often snake around the building. The mural is on the east side of the alley that separates the restaurant from the Lincoln Theatre, and although it might seem like an obvious ﬁt for Ben’s, the idea was nearly a year in the making. “It’s looking great. I was worried at first, to be quite honest,
Legal Graffiti The Ben’s Chili Bowl mural was commissioned by MuralsDC, the city-funded program that provides legal avenues for turning donated wall space into graffiti-inspired works of art. The mural is a tremendous example of what happens when government and nonprofit groups work together. (E XPRESS)
because it’s a wall,” said creator Aniekan Udoﬁa, 36, as he put the ﬁnishing touches on a piece that features four men who have supported the neighborhood stalwart. “It’s not a ﬂat surface like a canvas or a piece of paper.” Public art is vital to any city. Just ask Charles Jean-Pierre, the artist behind the all-acrylic Chuck Brown mural at Sweet Mango in
Petworth. “Street art is deﬁnitely an underrated form of art, usually looked down upon,” said JeanPierre, who helped Udoﬁa with the Ben’s mural. “But it’s hard to look down upon street art when you see big murals like this.” There may be more visible murals around the city, but the location of this one is paramount. Ben’s is arguably the most important landmark that represents the District’s native culture. Over the past 10 years, it has been ground zero as a window into the gentriﬁcation of the city. But long before Obama made an appearance with then-Mayor Adrian Fenty, Ben’s was serving people like Tonya Garner. Garner stood outside and marveled at the nearly completed painting last week. She surveyed it and declared herself a fan. “I prefer for the government money to be spent for a beautiful mural rather than just cleaning up grafﬁti,” she said. “It’s awesome. I love it.”

People scroll through data and make phone calls with the flick of the wrist, toggling an interface laid over eyesight. But a virus has suddenly spread through the device, immediately killing a third of the population. The Web series, produced by Bryan Singer, the director of “X-Men,” debuted on YouTube in August and updates with a new four- to seven-minute episode every
Melvin Abston, left, and Nikki Crawford, right, star in the YouTube series “H+.”
Presidential Bump MTV has moved up the start of its annual Video Music Awards to 8 p.m. so fans won’t have to choose between pop stars and President Barack Obama. The show, hosted by comedian Kevin Hart, above, airs Thursday, the same night Obama accepts the Democratic nomination for another term as president. The show will end at 10 p.m., before the president is scheduled to speak. MTV often uses the VMAs to introduce new programming in the hour afterward but will not do so this year. (AP)
Wednesday, a pace that will take its run into January. With obvious inspiration from “Lost,” the series shifts back and forth in time, gathering stories from before and after the event to piece together why it happened. The series is meant to be nonlinear, leaving episode order choice up to the viewer. (A sliding time line helps chart the plot.) “H+” is an ambitious, 48-part show with clear intentions of raising the bar on digital series and bringing a higher standard of production value to the Web. “I wanted us to try to explore something more cinematic in the Internet space,” Singer says. “Something that would be very stylized, with a high production value, but at the same time be structured for the Internet.” JAKE COYLE (AP)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You may be chosen by someone in authority to work out a problem that he or she has been unable to crack. You hold the key. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) A conflict may develop over an issue that is really nothing more than a difference in personal taste. No one is wrong here! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Information comes to you from many sources, but what you hear firsthand is likely to be more applicable than anything you read. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Face-to-face communication will come in handy throughout the day â€” and may prove indispensible during evening hours. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You are eager to get cracking on something that is truly compelling to you â€” but first you must finish a routine, even dreary, project.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Avoid engaging in the kind of rampant criticism that others enjoy; you donâ€™t want to find fault with anyone. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) A certain task is made much more enjoyable by the participation of someone whose company you enjoy and from whom you learn key lessons. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You have a way of boosting the confidence of those around you, making them more efficient and effective. Today is no exception.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Premature action on your part can only work against you today; be sure that you are ready when called upon to do your duty.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You want to be recognized not for accomplishments that you think will be remembered, but for those that will not. They mean the most to you right now.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Someone may be challenging you at this time. You donâ€™t want to react before you are ready to bring all your talents to bear.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may be surprised to learn that someone you thought was an ally has been working against you in ways. It may be time for an honest talk.
